Today, TSL announced a worldwide distribution agreement with Tyco Retail Solutions, a leading global provider of retail performance and security solutions.
Tyco Retail Solutions will distribute and support TSL’s mobile UHF RFID readers, including the high-performance 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader and the 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader. The combined TSL and Tyco RFID retail solution empowers employees with in-store mobility and user-friendly technology to improve real-time inventory visibility and accuracy for enhanced operational efficiencies and increased store performance.
“RFID continues to be top of mind for retailers around the globe,” said Nancy Chisholm, President, Tyco Retail Solutions. “By working with TSL to deliver RFID innovations focused on in-store mobility, customers can not only maximize existing investments in cost-effective iOS devices, but also improve inventory availability and empower employees with actionable information to optimize the shopper experience.”
TSL’s universal UHF RFID readers are ideally suited for use with popular devices already being used in the store such as enterprise handhelds, phones and tablets to reduce costs for large scale deployment and accelerate return on investment. With centralized management and increased mobility, information relayed between and within stores enables personnel to easily access data from any Bluetooth® wireless device – perfect for today’s bring-your-own-device (BYOD) enterprise strategy.
“We are pleased to partner with Tyco Retail Solutions, an established, trusted solution provider with a long history of bringing hardware innovations and software solutions to retailers worldwide,” said Dr. David Evans, Managing Director of TSL. “The TSL RFID readers, based on our standard ASCII 2 protocol, enhance Tyco’s offerings to deliver outstanding retail inventory management capability through a cost-efficient, easy-to-use solution.”
The combined Tyco and TSL solution will be demonstrated with iOS and Android-powered devices in the Tyco Retail Solutions exhibition booth #1363 at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Retail’s Big Show, January 11-14, 2015, in New York City.
